Pearce's Ireland in action

3 September 2014

Republic host Oman

Alex Pearce will be hoping to be involved tonight as the Republic of Ireland take on Oman in a friendly at the Aviva Stadium, 7.45pm.

Pearce has been named in Martin O'Neill's final squad, while Royals striker Simon Cox has been on standby and Stephen Kelly is injured.

The game is live on Setanta Ireland, and will be good preparation for the Emerald Isle's first Euro 2016 qualifier against Georgia on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Jake Taylor has received a first Wales call-up, and joins Chris Gunter in the squad for a UEFA qualifier away to Andorra on Tuesday 9th September. Fellow Welshman Hal Robson-Kanu is ruled out through injury.

Oliver Norwood is with Northern Ireland as they take on Hungary in Budapest on Sunday evening. All international qualifiers are now available to watch on Sky Sports 5.

Shaun Cummings was picked by Jamaica for a match against Canada in Toronto next Tuesday, but suffered a knee injury in our game at Scunthorpe last week.

Shane Griffin and Sean Long are with Ireland's Under 21s for a UEFA qualifier away to Germany on Friday night. Pierce Sweeney has also travelled despite an operation on a broken nose late last month.

Jonathan Henly and Dominic Hyam are part of the Scotland Under 21 setup as they take on Slovakia and Luxembourg in UEFA qualifiers.

Midfielder Sammi Fridjonsson is with Iceland's Under 19s, alongside Academy youngsters Tomas Urbancic and Sindri Scheving, as they play two games against Northern Ireland, who include under-18s midfielder Lewis Collins, on Wednesday and Friday.

Rob Dickie, Aaron Kuhl and Jack Stacey are all on standby for England's Under 19s ahead of a friendly in Germany next week.

Youth striker Harry Cardwell impressed for Scotland U19s on Tuesday night as he bagged a first half brace, and will be hoping for more goals on Thursday against Switzerland. Tom McIntyre, also of the Royals Academy, is currently with Scotland U17s at a training camp.
